Turtle Beach TBS-2255


Have had this headset for 4 years now and I have to say it's one of he best headsets I've had. Works like a charm on the pc and the Xbox 360. Just be gentle with it and take care of it and you should have no problem with this headset

None really

Fantastic Low-Cost Headset


I bought this headset over a year ago, thinking "Oh, cool, I can use these with my Xbox, too." And they indeed work just fine with an Xbox 360. However, to use them alongside an HDMI cable, purchase of an inexpensive adapter is required. Other than...

Great audio quality compared to other, cheaper headsets I've owned ; Durability. I've owned them for over a year with no issues so far ; Bass control is a nice touch ; Volume is very audible, even at a low setting ; Mic quality is great for the price

Volume slider can be easy to accidentally move

No good for PC


I bought this headset to use with my PC. The wire on this headset does not appear to be sheilded. When next to a significant power source, a loud static noise will be present to people on the other end. I cannot say this for sure, because I did not cut...

Good sound quality. Very comfortable. Fits over ears well

Microphone picks up a lot of background noise. When using in Skype or other similar programs, very loud static noises

Great Headset


Great sound quality, microphone is fantastic, and I love the multi-adaptability of the output connections

I have piercings, so sometimes the headset will rub on the top of my ears, which makes them sore after playing for about an hour or so. Not certain if it is my piercings, but a slightly larger circumference would be nice. Not much of a Con really,...

Good but they have problems.


Next pair will be ones that the ears do NOT swivel. (I know it helps with comfort but it also creates a weak point)

Sound, does the job, comfortable on slightly bigger heads ; Good Bass

They break right where the frame that holds the ear meets the head band and swivels, it's a small round cylinder piece of plastic which the bottom part is connected to the ear piece and the top is not so it can swivel ; Be careful on how you take them...

These were replacements for a set of X11 that i had that broke after 2 years. I expect that for the use that i put on these. They are sturdy built but feel cheap. After years of use they still hold to my head tight but they don't give me a headache....

The comfortable foam/fabric ear muffs breathe better than the vinyl covered ones. The vinyl ones make me sweat and gets rather uncomfortable. Great gaming headset. I use it for work and play. I work as tech support for a call center. I wear these for...

The mic boom is super flimsy. Bass boost frequency range is a little on the high side. I feel that it should boost lower frequencies. Minus 1 egg for that. The cord is a bit long for what i need but the Velcro strap keeps the cord neatly wrapped. I...

Great product (especially for the price)

They don't squeeze my head (and I have a 7.5 hat size) and they completely cover my ears. The sound is great and the mic works well according to people I talk to. I use it for gaming and it's very comfortable to wear for long periods of time

I haven't found any so far, but I'll let you know if I do

Turtle Beach X12 XBOX 360 Headset


After reading some of the reviews here I'm left to imagine that some of the reviewers that praise the comfort quality of the X12's either have very small heads or that my head is way over-sized. I have never put my head inside a vise and applied...

Decent sound quality (for my use- p.c. gaming, mostly.) Nice amp/control module. Fairly light weight for over the ear style and good size (50mm) speakers

Inadequate padding on the ear pieces in my opinion. They also seam to get way too warm and uncomfortable after wearing for an hour or so
